This cool vintage ringer tee was made back in the 1970s and it features a humorous graphic of an "exhausted rooster".  This unique shirt features a vibrant pink collar and cuffs along with its chicken-themed imagery. While Exhausted Rooster is the name of both an antique mall in North Carolina and a pipe tobacco blend made by Cornell & Diehl, this shirt predates both of those businesses.

The t-shirt could be referring to the nickname given to retired members of the United States Junior Chamber or Jaycees. While the leadership training organization is typically for people between the ages of 18 and 40, Jaycees who have aged past 40 are sometimes asked to assist their former organizations and referred to as Exhausted Roosters. The term was gradually phased out over time however, in favor of the more gender-neutral title "Jaycee Graduate".

Of course this shirt could also just be making a humorous double entendre, if you consider what some synonyms for rooster and exhausted might be.

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There is a small, light spot on the front, see pics.
